Education at Liverpool Cathedral

Liverpool Cathedral Education Centre caters for groups of all ages, offering curriculum based and special focus educational programmes which cover an extensive range of interests and subject areas. Using the Cathedral as the focus for all of our activities, the aim of each visit is to inspire a sense of awe and wonder, as well as developing learning through a range of first-hand experiences and practical sessions. Each visit is an active learning experience designed to encourage pupils to ask questions. We hope to provide experiences and memories that will last beyond the length of their visit. We are always happy to adapt and develop our workshops to meet your pupils’ particular needs. We want to make teachers happy too! So we will do everything we can to make sure that your visit runs smoothly.

NOTE: From a broader HERITAGE viewpoint, you may also find the following website useful where Liverpool Cathedral is also featured:

"I just wanted to say how much our students from both St Julie’s and our partner school in Madrid enjoyed the visit to the Cathedral on Saturday (10th March 2012). Your colleagues made us most welcome and all of us had a thoroughly good time both walking around the Cathedral and on the viewing platform at the top of the tower".
Scott Davenport - Assistant Headteacher (St Julie’s Catholic High School, Liverpool)

"It was a fantastic day (Remembrance Day Workshops 2011). The children really enjoyed it and the staff brought the best out of them"
Mr Lyndsay - Year 5-6 teacher (Our Lady's of Walsingham) -

"Very well planned and the half hour workshops (Remembrance Day Workshops 2011) were well timed to keep the children's attention and focus"
TA (Our Lady's of Walsingham)

The pupils at the Remembrance Day Workshops were asked to write down one thing they are going to tell people about their visit to the Cathedral

"I am going to say that they should visit the Cathedral because it is a great place"
RC Callaghan - Year 6 pupil (Our Lady's of Walsingham)
